Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photography and the Poetic Image: The Photography Workshop Series Paperback – June 30 2014
Enhance your purchase
Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches to, teachings on, and insights into photography―offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers at all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Each volume is introduced by a well-known student of the featured photographer. In this volume, the Webbs share their thoughts about a wide range of practical and philosophical issues, from questions about seeing and being in the world with a camera, to how to shape a complete body of work in a way that's both structured and intuitive. Award-winning novelist Teju Cole, a student of the Webbs, provides the introduction.

They don't seem to be able to explain how they take the photos they take in any clear way. On top of that they seemed to just repeat the name of photo books they produced over and over again, as if each page were a separate thing and not to be read together.
If you want to learn how to photograph like either of these photographers search elsewhere. But if you want a good collection of some of their best work you will love this.
